Notes from Our Members

Emma Chait
Emma Chait enlightens another student at McGill University.

Our event went really well! A few friends and I ended up passing out the whole lot of booklets in four days.
    Vegan Outreach changed my life many years ago and I can’t imagine what I’d be like if I hadn’t received the Why Vegan?
—WG, 7/17/10

While strolling in Chicago, I accepted a booklet from one of your volunteers. Now I’m determined to go vegan!
—PP, 7/5/10

Good leafleting while people waited for the Memorial Day Parade. When the parade ended I gave a leaflet to Miss Maine USA and to Miss Maine Teen USA.
—Lana Smithson, 5/31/10

Wednesday was a nice sunny day at Cabrillo College. I was well received and had pleasant conversations. A number of people exclaimed that they would read the brochure / check it out. One guy had a really cool shirt, so I asked him about it. We chatted for a second and he said he had gotten a leaflet earlier and is vegan and has been for six years. If I hadn’t said anything, I never would have found this out. Makes you wonder how many silent vegans / vegetarians are walking around out there right now.
     I thought of this today while Theo Summer and I were leafleting local high schools. During a slow period, I asked a young lady who I had seen reading the brochure what she thought about it. She informed me she’d been vegetarian since age six. Later, a young lady standing by idly asked Theo about our organization, then informed him she was a vegetarian trying to go vegan and that her two older sisters were vegan. Several students mentioned having seen Food, Inc. A whole slew of students sat around reading the leaflets.

Veggie Pride Parade

A great showing for the first ever Toronto Veggie Pride Parade today! A number of us handed out VO booklets to the many onlookers (example at right).
—Alex Greenwood, 6/5/10

Productive weekend leafleting the young people in the French Quarter for the long weekend. Got good feedback; e.g., one group of four teenagers began looking at the Compassionate Choices and discussing it right in front of me, one of the girls saying, “See? That's what they do to them!” Another girl from the group told me that she had tried to be a vegetarian once; we had a good conversation, and she also got a Guide.
—Twila Hoyle, 5/29/10

Outreach for Animals Week was a huge success, as we recruited five new leafleters and reached seven new schools. All ten public high schools in Portland have been leafleted this year now, and we’re going to expand to other school districts.
—Yvonne LeGrice, 6/1/10

Leslie Patterson
Leslie Patterson takes the animals’ case to Chicago’s Takin’ It to the Streets Urban International Festival.

Great outreach at Ohio State, where Joe (Espinosa) and I reached nearly 1,000 students. Lots of ag students were very worked up, saying we are destroying their business. We did our best to keep it on topic with how our choices can prevent suffering and not get too tied up with these students, since lots of other students there seemed open to rejecting animal abuse.
—Leslie Patterson (at right), 6/1/10

John Oberg and I had great success leafleting the Phoenix Immigration March. The acceptance rate was very high; many people even came over to get one! I met many vegetarians and vegans, especially many Hispanic vegetarians, which I was very glad to see. One woman stopped briefly to chat, and is really ready to make a change. I also ran into a group of Vegan Outreach supporters from a nearby town! I was really happy with this event because it was by far our best outreach to the Hispanic community yet.
